The Dusty Shed

So what is the Shed? Based around the Men In Sheds principle, an initiative that is well established in Australia and Ireland, the “Shed” is basically somewhere for generally men to go to undertake practical activities such as wood work, metal work, electronics or anything else that those attending wish to do. It is only limited by peoples imagination (one shed in France is restoring a WW2 tank!). Although primarily aimed at older men as it has been shown that this section of society are particularly susceptible to depression etc as they move from employment to retirement, and particularly for whatever reason they find themselves on their own, it is open to all. This project aims to get us out of the house/flat, meeting others and making friends, learning new skills, utilising existing ones, sharing these skills and making a positive contribution to the community and others.

@cardiffrivers @DaveCRG To be honest Jon and Matt did most of it! Very impressive bit of kit! Lots of stream clearance I think next autumn/winter, plus successional reed cut. 👍
